Problem 2-5 Using the Coxs (Fig 2-7 McCain), at different temperatures, determine the corresponding vapor pressures up to the critical point, which is 90.1 F &amp; 708.5 psi. From (80;560) until (80;800), the vapor-pressure line is crossed. Therefore, there is a sharp change in the density of the ethane, passing form the vapor phase to the liquid phase. From (80;800) to (100;800), there is no abrupt phase change (Vapor pressure line is not crossed) but at the final condition, the system will be vapor or gas (Temperature is larger than the critical). From (100,800) to (100,560), again there is no an abrupt change in the properties of the ethane as the vapor pressure line is not crossed. The system will remain as gas. By using the Pressure-Volume diagram, it is easy to identify and visualize how pressure-temperature changes take place during a particular change of conditions of the system and how these conditions determine the existence of a particular phase. Thus, passing for a condition where only the vapor phase is present to one where both liquid and vapor coexist is readily described by this kind of plot. 2/7 Problem 2-6 The vapor pressure of carbon dioxide can be determined by plotting ln(p) values against 1/T which can be determined from the given data, as show below. can be determined from the given data, as show below....
